Inspired to Serve

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10

The apostle Peter encourages all believers in Jesus to be faithful stewards as they “love each other deeply” by sharing the resources and talents God has given them (1 Peter 4:8–11).

“Brenda, would you like to teach one of our Sunday School classrooms? I think you would be great with our youngest group.”

I know my mouth had to be open, my eyes bugged out big, and a crazy facial expression that indicated to my minister, I thought he had lost his mind! What business did a high school girl have teaching a Sunday School class?

“I think you can do it, and I would like you to try.”

Okay, I said to Rev. Korb. I could see another one of our church ladies with the same expression I had. So, she was thinking the same thing! No way was I supposed to be teaching this class.

I began my lesson with the children, and a feeling came over me. It was pure warmth, love, and indescribable. I had never felt this before. Rev. Korb stopped in to check on us and smiled.

I do believe as I reflect on life, this was when God called me to the role of teaching. I did not find it again until later in my life journey, but Rev. Korb knew.

“Our small acts of love can inspire others to join us in giving. God can even rally supporters to serve alongside us. As we rely on Him, we can live to serve and give Him the glory He deserves.” ~Xochitl Dixon
